enforcement for over 19 years. He is the author of Birth of an Angel (published
under the pen name Paul Stuart).
According to the book description of The Birth of an Angel,
“Peter Blakely has lost his faith. After nine years on the streets, amidst a childhood-acquainted with grief, he recalls
the absence of a father sent to prison years before. Now, a decade later, this man who has since been released, hopes for
reconciliation. Forgiveness, though, does not come easy for Peter; especially in light of his vocation. Years amidst deprecating
surroundings have changed him. For now it is easier not to believe; more comfortable not to forgive; more convenient to be
Enter Pascal…the newest angel. God has seen fit to create him for the sole
purpose of serving as a guardian to this unlikely police officer. Tentative and uncertain, Pascal finds himself curiously
unhappy with his “assignment”. ‘Why can’t he be closer to God, like the others? Why must he be so
proximate with the sin and depravation of the world?’
As the lessons are learned by each mortal, so they are burned into the souls of
each of their guardian angels. And what is visible to angelic eyes is not always visible to human ones. Why is there assisted
suicide? Why does God allow suffering in the world? How is the world truly viewed in Heaven? Curious questions to humans.
But when witnessed through the eyes of celestial beings, who see God as He is, the world makes a bit more sense.
Will Pascal reach Peter? Will his discontentment
be addressed by the Son? Or will he come to see that he is closest to the Trinity amidst the thankless drudgery he seeks to
avoid? A vocation filled with rewards not unlike that of his mortal’s, perhaps the answers are closer than he thinks.
According to one reader of The
Birth of an Angel, “The breadth and depth of this work goes beyond most contemporary author’s capabilities.
The relativistic - subjectivism - Situational Ethics - traditional Christian moral theological viewpoints are brought out
and contrasted in a modern believable fashion. This work will MAKE YOU THINK --- about your own life and where you are headed.
The work is written in a manner entertaining and enjoyable and acceptable for teens yet sophisticated enough for mature minds.”
